When the country was placed on lockdown, it became an urgent desire for us as the church to find a way to serve and support the community. After getting in contact with The Braunton Community Network it was agreed that there may be a need for a local food bank. We jumped at the opportunity to open up the doors and get the ball rolling in helping bring that to life.
There are no ‘eligibility’ questions or criteria that need to be met. All you need to do is send us a message with your name and preferred contact number with the best time to call. One of our friendly volunteers will then get in touch to discuss what items you would like. We can offer delivery via a foodbank volunteer, your street co-ordinator or you can collect in person from the church hall (social distancing guidelines are in place).
We want to ensure that those who need help; get it. It is important to us that everyone knows this is not a ‘normal’ food bank. It is not here just to serve the most ‘severe cases’. We are in unprecedented times and there is a lot of uncertainty for many people. Whether you are in isolation so unable to leave the house, have lost an income or simply trying to manage your budget to be able to feed your children extra meals now they are not in school – we want to help.
So, if you or anyone you know is need of help; please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you soon! Stay Safe!
